“Nice Hotel Convenient Location but”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

We stayed here one weekend night in October and found this hotel has a lot going for it. We were upgraded without asking into one of their exercise rooms. It had weights an exercise bike and yoga equipment as well as exercise videos so you could have a nice workout in your own room. The room was oversized so even with all of the equipment there was plenty of room.

It had everything you would expect at a Westin, accomodating staff, clean updated facilities and a nice/bar restaurant in the basement. We had breakfast there and it was quite good and considering everything pretty reasonably priced too.

Now for the location, it is convenient approximately equal distance to Foggy Bottom, DuPont Circle and Georgetown. But in spite of being in the middle of everything or perhaps because of it, it is pretty dead in the area right around the hotel. We walked around looking for a nice neighborhood restaurant and didn't find one we liked until we had walked all the way to Dupont Circle. So if you're thinking you can stay here and just step out of the hotel for a quick meal and drink it's not going to happen.

Still a nice Westin and I would reccomend it

Room Tip: Ask for the free exercise room upgrade

I booked this hotel by accident, I meant to book the Westin in the city. If like us you want a super-central location this probably isn't for you.
However I'm happy we landed here although a fair old walk in to the mall we enjoyed seeing a side to Washington we hadn't discovered before and foggy bottom night life.
The hotel itself has some great facilities and the service is excellent very friendly, the gym had good and plentiful equipment, great coffee shop across the road and wonderful bagel store around the corner.
Excellent stay and wonderful value

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Westin Georgetown. We stayed in a variety of places in the States and Europe during our recent trip away and this hotel was one of the better "value for money" places we stayed.

The rooms were clean and modern (comfy bed, great bathroom), and the staff we encountered were all friendly and helpful. The hotel was easy to get to: we flew into DCA then caught the Metro to Foggy Bottom and walked 5-10 minutes up the road to the hotel, which was an easy walk (with 2 large suitcases) and perhaps the only tricky part was crossing Washington Circle. We left DC on Amtrak and simply caught the bus from opposite Foggy Bottom Metro (there is another bus which picks you up closer I believe but it wasn't running when we left early in the morning). Easy!

The only downside for me about the hotel was the lack of free wi-fi.

Overall DC is a great city - the Smithsonian museums are all free and one of our highlights was biking around this fabulous city using the Capital Bikeshare bikes. As others have mentioned, this hotel isn't actually in Georgetown but Georgetown was so easy to get to using the bikeshare bikes (and definitely worth a visit). Another great find for us was Devon & Blakely which was a place that had inexpensive, healthy and delicious food (soups and salads etc.), just down the street near Washington Circle.

My wife and I decided to spend the night in DC in the Georgetown area and what better place to stay than the Westin. A few things I liked about the hotel:
1. Proximity to historic downtown: About a 5min walk to all the stores
2. Dupont Circle: Its about a 10-15 min walk to the hotel and lots of places to eat around there
3. Rooms: as all Westin hotels, excellent with the heavenly bed so comfy. Great night sleep.
4. Service: Friendly staff, courteous desk staff too.

Only bad part: parking is $34/ night, very expensive so if you can avoid driving there or find another parking spot around do that.

Other than that, it was an awesome stay totally worth it and highly reccomended.

The Westin Georgetown was very clean and the staff were friendly enough. There were two things we did not like about our stay at the Westin. First, was the fact that you have to pay extra for the internet- really? That should be standard- even Starbucks has free WiFi. Second, the two restaurants on the property were being renovated and therefore, we had to find somewhere else to dine. We arrived late evening, so it was a bit inconvenient to find food and grab a night cap. Otherwise our stay was pleasant.

The room was great very well appointed with plenty of plugs and the bathroom had both a huge tub and a shower. The mini bar is one of those that if you move an item you get charged, which stressed out my wife. I got on the internet one morning and was met by many choices Basic, enhanced (with dedicated IP ) and premium speed. No speeds were listed next to each selection. I got basic for 9.99 since Premium was $30 a day and I was not planning on streaming video. It was so slow it was unusable even for mail and basic web browsing . I felt like I was on dial up. The concierge is NEVER there , and the desk clerks were not very helpful for information about the area. It is a beautiful hotel right near DuPont and Georgetown ( it is not technically in Georgetown.)

I completed a two night stay at this property and was pleased. The staff is a real high point here, they are very friendly and attentive to SPG status and amenities. Rooms are large and feature spacious bathrooms with separate vanity and walk-in shower. This is a solid option in DC and I look forward to return.
